Support » Plugin: Contact Form 7 » CF7 5.1.1 not working with WP 5.1.1

  • Resolved jensdes


    I know the plug in says it’s not been tested yet with the newest version of WordPress 5.1.1. I’m not able to get the form to work. I was wondering if anyone who was also using WP 5.1.1 had a solution for their forms that works. If anyone has suggestions on what my options might be I’d appreciate some advice.

    Here’s my form set up:

    <label> Your Name (required)
    [text* your-name] </label>

    <label> Company Name (required)
    [text* CompanyName] </label>

    <label> Your Email (required)
    [email* your-email] </label>

    <label> Address (required)
    [text* Address] </label>

    <label> Address2
    [text Address2] </label>

    <label> City (required)
    [text* City] </label>

    <label> State (required)
    [text* State] </label>

    <label> Zip (required)
    [text* Zip] </label>

    <label> Phone Number (required)
    [text* phone] </label>

    <label> Unit Model Name (required)
    [text* Model] </label>

    <label> Unit Model Number (required)
    [text* ModelNumber] </label>

    <label> Unit Serial Number (required)
    [text* Serial] </label>

    <label> Date of Purchase (required)
    [date* DatePurchase] </label>

    <label> Dealer Purchased From (required)
    [text* Dealer] </label>

    <label> Date of Installation (required)
    [date* DateInstall] </label>

    Nevermind. I just rolled back to WordPress 4.9.10.

    I was wondering if anyone who was also using WP 5.1.1 had a solution for their forms that works.

    I’m using CF7 5.1.1 with latest WP versions on many sites without problems – I get dozens of emails every day from these sites.

    Rolling back to older versions of WP is never an ideal option.

    You may see issues with CF7 5.1.1 if you’ve:

    • previously used reCAPTCHA v2 with CF7
    • updated to CF7 5.1.1 or newer and
    • not changed your previous reCAPTCHA v2 keys to reCAPTCHA v3 keys at Contact > Integration.

    Well, when you’re troubleshooting and stuff has to get done you do what you must. Rolling back seemed logical to me because I have another site that’s built on the same theme, same CF7 and it’s on WP 4.9.10 without any issues.

    But to clarify the solution, it was an actual email issue. Google (Gmail) was filtering these messages even though my tech guy had looked and not found them initially.

    I have not encountered the reCAPTCHA issue…. I’ll check on that. I appreciate your help on all this. I literally spent 6 hours trying to solve this issue and it was so frustrating because forms are typically so easy!! Thanks again.
